Pres. Trump, that master of flimflamery and misdirection, has found a way to take our minds off his impeachment predicament. War always gets everyone’s maximum attention – Nothing like a good little war, or the threat of one, to stoke unthinking patriotism and knee-jerk rallying around the flag. And if the “enemy’ won’t cooperate by staring a war, we’ll just have to do it ourselves.

Never mind the fact that Iran – our chosen enemy of the moment – is not a threat to the United States. And let’s overlook all the things we have done to provoke them. No, the important thing is that this military action and saber-rattling will wipe out those news headlines about impeaching the President.

How many people are going to die because Trump wants to change the subject?
